July 18, 2016: Pssssssssssst! If you’re peeing yourself, you might not have to. Host Emma Breacain speaks to body science geek Susie Kidd about a strong and healthy pelvic floor.

IMG_6920Ladies, has your trainer ever told you if you’re not peeing yourself, you’re not working out hard enough? If you didn’t already rightfully call them crazy and book it on out of there, this is your moment. Sure, some of us have health issues that will make incontinence a part of living, but all of us can benefit from learning about our pelvic floor and how to keep everything “down there” in the best possible shape.

Statistics on this embarrassing subject are hard to come by, and most incontinence studies focus on the elderly. But everyone has a youngish, healthy-ish friend or family member trying to be subtle about racing wild-eyed for the public restrooms, conditioned to believe that this is part of life, or life after 30, or life after childbirth. What if it’s not?

Dancer and movement educator Susie Kidd is proprietress and instructor at Sacred Bodies Pilates in Eureka CA. She is also a faculty member for the Center for Women’s Fitness, makes continuing education a part of her practice, is certified in “Pink Ribbon” post operative exercise, and she recently brought her students a boatload of new information after renewing her certification in pre and post natal fitness.

Kidd dropped by KHSU to tell our listeners all about the pelvic floor, what it is, how it works, how to find it, and how to keep it in tip top shape for healthy menstruation, childbirth, sex, and just getting through another day without peeing oneself.
